The decrease in collagen as you get older can cause your cheeks to lose volume and droop. Significant weight loss can also create sunken facial features, making you look older. Voluma® injections can turn back the clock and plump your cheeks to help you feel more confident about your appearance.
How Voluma Injections Work
Voluma is a dermal filler that consists of hyaluronic acid mixed with a smooth gel to lift and plump cheekbones. Before treatment, numbing cream is applied to your face to help minimize discomfort. The injections can be done in less than an hour, and you can resume normal activities immediately.
Some swelling and redness can be expected after treatment that can be managed using ice packs and over-the-counter medications. You will receive special instructions after treatment to help minimize any discomfort. Results can last up to two years. Voluma injections can be combined with other cosmetic procedures to enhance facial rejuvenation.
Ideal Candidates for Voluma Injections
Voluma is ideal for women who wish to restore volume to their cheeks for greater contour. It can also be beneficial for men, although the techniques used will be different during treatment. Ideal candidates will be in good general health with no medical conditions that may interfere with healing. Make sure the plastic surgeon is aware of any medications or supplements you are taking prior to the procedure.
